Anyone know anything about old stamps?

    Do we have any stamp collectors here? I've got some old stamps, some in blocks and some really old ones in this mid-1950's stamp collector book called "The Aristocrat World Stamp Album." What's the best way to unload these? Should I go Ebay or is there some website where people sell and trade stamps that might be better?

    Also is there any online resource that could tell me the value?

    Just the time Richard Pryor used that upside down airplane stamp in the movie "Brewsters Millions".

    A classic move on Pryor's part. However, I wonder why he didn't just spend all his money on rare stamps to use for mailing letters. It would have been so easy.

    I don't know, I know I would have thoroughly enjoyed watching him buy a bunch of stamps, write letters attach the stamps, mail the letters and then wait for the money for an hour and a half.

    - remind me to never take your advice on which movies to see.
